'I look forward to every class'
I'd never heard of Crossfit and I'd never stuck at any gym for more than 6 weeks. 12 months in and I go 3-5 times a week. I feel great and look forward to every class. Best ever coach!
'A great strength and overall fitness programme'
I had heard about CrossFit and decided to check it out - I wasn’t disappointed. I've been a member for a few months and enjoy the challenge of the constantly varied workouts. Rick is a very knowledgeable coach who ensures focus is on proper technique and form. He provides a great strength and overall fitness program - which is easily scaled to your level. Crossfit Boudica is a great set up with loads of interesting people focused on having fun, fitness and self improvement .
'Can't recommend the place enough'
I've been training at Boudicca for a year now and can't recommend the place or the people enough. Rick is an amazing coach and the other members are like family. Not only does Rick have unlimited knowledge about Crossfit and physiology but he's also got a knack of being able to adjust his coaching and approach to suit each individual and get the best out of them. He's incredibly patient and supportive of all members and devotes a lot his own time ensuring members are looked after and feel valued.
'Since joining Boudicca I've become a machine!'
Richard is a fantastic coach, very knowledgeable, motivating and above all he believes in every single member and pushes us to our ultimate limit. I have gained so much strength and achieved unbelievable amounts of progress. I wouldn't have been able to do this without the encouragement and coaching from Richard and not forgetting the support of all the members of Crossfit Boudicca. I now feel like I've become the Queen of Boudicca!
'Personal approach to coaching'
Richard has a very personal approach to coaching, each session is a great mixture of strength and technique work with a clear focus on improving performance at all levels from beginner to Crossfit fanatic.
'No nonsense coaching style'
Richard is a knowledgeable coach and a fantastic people person. His no nonsense coaching style and understanding of the human body makes for an intense, safe and satisfying workout. Good bloke good gym. I'm definitely a happy customer.
I approached the box for help with functional strength post serious injury. Personalised, scientific and inclusive. Excellent facilities and phenomenal knowledge delivered with humility from a coach that lets the results do the talking. Good vibes!
'Skillfully helped with technical issues'
I was lucky enough to be coached by Richard earlier in the year at CrossFit Harrogate. I hit a bit of a flat spot in my training but Richard motivated me to get my head back in the game. He very skilfully helped me with some technical issues I had. One thing I was really impressed with was his ability to body-read and then to implement simple cueing to improve certain movement patterns. He has an extremely enthusiastic coaching style and you can’t help but give your best when Richard is around!
'Has the right, balanced manner for coaching women'
Richard is one of the few guys who has the right and balanced manner as a Crossfit coach for us the fairer sex. Crossfit is fantastic for women and I know Richard is striving to make it a balanced and welcoming box. Wish Richard and all the new members all the very best for Crossfit Boudicca.
'Bags and bags of knowledge!!'
An awesome coach with bags and bags of knowledge!! If I'm ever in need of advice with regards to training, Rick is always my first point of call.. The box will no doubt be a fantastic place to train!
'Has the enthusiasm and awareness to help maximise performance'
I have undertaken a great array of gym regimes in the past, but have never found one that matches the intensity, or provides the benefits that Crossfit does. Richard is not only a highly qualified coach, but has the enthusiasm and awareness to ensure his clients train to maximise performance and minimise risk. Richard's desire to coach clients with a wide range of abilities will ensure Crossfit Boudicca provides a friendly and enjoyable environment for all.
'Knowledgeable and conscientious'
I've trained with Richard for a number of years, both as a training partner and as a student. I can confidently say that he has developed into the most knowledgeable and conscientious fitness professional that I have come across. He has helped me transition from Crossfit newcomer into a beginner competitor.
